Cognitive Diet (Piscitelli): How we design our own curriculum, how we organize and reflect on emerging learning experinces.
Problem solving and learning from experience become central processes

Design spaces for learning to emerge / content to be built through meaningful interactions. Not downloading content to students.

Various perspectives of how knowledge is propagated through networks have addressed the problem of information overload. Information is essentially raw data and is disconnected and of itself of little use beyond the scope of factoid. Communities and networks help us to aggregate, filter, and assimilate this information into some kind of knowledge structure and then disseminate it throughout the community or network. Nik Peachey (2009) addressed exactly this concept in his presentation recorded at the recent AVEALMEC/ARCALL online conference on Social Networking. Downes (2005) has written and presented much on the concept of diffusion of knowledge within distributed learning networks, as has Siemens (2006). Siemens has long espoused the notion of connectivism, famously summarized as “The pipe is more important than the content within the pipe.” (Siemens, 2004, n.p.). Here, Siemens means that it is more important to nurture a system of connections between knowledgeable people (the pipe) than to be concerned with what these knowledgeable people know (the content within the pipe) since this content can be directed as needed to anyone with appropriate connections within the pipe.
We enjoy learning – W share our work – We get together voluntarily. It’s not an obligation.
“ In this new interactive Web world, I have become a nomadic learner; I graze on knowledge. I find what I need when I need it.”
Will Richardson 2006
“ We know we can publish information, now we need to focus on how we connect to each other, how we build learning contexts” P. Mancini 2007
“ Know-how and know-what is being supplemented with know-where (the understanding of where to find knowledge needed).” “ The pipe is more important than the content within the pipe. Our ability to learn what we need for tomorrow is more important than what we know today.” G. Siemens 2004 http://www.elearnspace.org/Articles/connectivism.htm
“ As people become more fulfilled and do work that they enjoy it becomes less work and more play. In some way, we are seeing in the web the evidence of the marriage between work and play, which is really what life should be about.” Kevin Kelly – Digitalismo 2007
